I am a Single Mom with an 8 month old son. His father comes to our home every weekday morning to spend and hour or more with my son instead of taking him for weekends, etc.
I have been in a relationship with someone for 3 months and he is very jealous of my son's father. I try to reassure him that our realtionship is strictly about my son, but it's hard for him to understand. This is my first relationship since becoming a mom, and all new so I'm not sure what else to do!? I don't know if it will last, and my son loves him so much, it makes me weary about dating again. What is your usual rule on new guys meeting your child? (I don't want men coming in and out of his life!) How often can a mom actually go out on a date without feeling guilty that she is putting dating above her child? Any comments would be great. Dating with my son is whole new world to me. He comes first and I would rather be alone than harm him in any way, but I would love more than anything to find a good man that can complete our family and be a good role model.
